This was my first Larson novel and I wouldn’t mind reading more from her, especially if it followed these characters. This was a quirky middle grade novel that focused on the summer between two best friends who had to spend it apart. We only see them together a few times which I didn’t like. I wanted to see more of their friendship and interactions but my prayers weren’t answered. I felt like I was just supposed to believe they were the best of friends without being given anything to prove that point. I also felt weird reading this and had a hard time navigating in the beginning. I felt like I had stumbled in the middle of something as if it were a sequel? I still don’t know if it’s true or not. Either way, it was quick to get through and it was what I was really looking for at the moment.
The main character and her best friend definitely held my interest but other than that, I didn’t care about the rest of the characters.
